(NEW YORK) — He can sing, dance and act, and he’s great at hosting Saturday Night Live. But could Justin Timberlake actually host the Oscars? Maybe, but it’s not something that’s going to happen anytime soon.
A source close to Justin tells GossipCop that a rumor that Justin is in talks to host the 2014 Oscars and that he’s the “frontrunner for the job” — a claim that apparently originated in The National Enquirer — is “premature and ridiculous.” After all, the source points out, they haven’t even figured out who’s producing next year’s Oscars yet, and that always comes before any host decisions are made.
“While the multi-talented Timberlake’s name could certainly come up in future conversations about the Oscars, there’s nothing real behind the current buzz,” notes GossipCop.
